Kim Kardashian is reportedly struggling to lose weight after the birth of her son, Saint West. Although the mom of two has revealed that she lost 30 pounds since December, reports surfaced that Kim has been struggling to stay on track.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star hasn’t been seen in her signature trench coats and pencil skirts. That’s because the 35-year-old has been wearing yoga pants and baggier coats due to the stress of her husband Kanye West’s wild and bizarre behavior. An insider claims that West’s antics has caused Kardashian to “give up on herself!”
The reason why Kim is struggling with her weight loss is that her troubled marriage has been taking priority in her life. A so-called Kardashian friend claims that the starlet has been stress eating lately.
“Whenever Kim is going through something, she uses food as her crutch,” the insider claimed. “Kim does not drink, smoke or do any substances because she’s always been against all of that. But she loves food. Food is her way of coping through anything.”
Another source told Radar Online the mother of two was planning to lose weight fast, so she decided to undergo an extreme dental procedure.
“Knowing she’d have to make an appearance at Kanye’s fashion show recently, Kim needed a quick fix. So she had her cosmetic dentist pull two teeth in the back of her mouth, which she believes makes her cheeks narrower and slims her face!”
Even though a previous source claimed that the Kardashian sister doesn’t drink, another source said that she’s been drinking more than usual. Her mom, Kris, also had to undergo a gastric band surgery to lose weight.
“She wants to fix the two things that are literally weighing her down – booze and food. Even though this is an extreme operation for someone Kris’ age, she’s convinced a gastric band is the best and fastest way to get back into shape.”
Just last week, sources told Radar Online that Kim also had liposculpture and “laser treatments on her stretch marks” at the Epione Cosmetic Laser Center in Beverly Hills.
Teeth pulling is an actual procedure that mostly runway models undergo, according to Yahoo Lifestyle Australia. But Gossip Cop has debunked this rumor, claiming there’s no truth to the rumors that Kim has had her teeth pulled. Instead, the reality star claims that she uses contouring makeup to slim down her face.
Though she has already lost 30 pounds, she has plans to lose even more. Kardashian has been trying to stick to her low-carb Atkins diet and her fitness regimen. She even shared some of her Atkins diet and workouts on her website and app. She also wears a waist trainer several hours a day, and works out with Khloe Kardashian’s personal trainer Gunnar Peterson.
Besides the diet and exercise, Kim has previously expressed that she wanted to lose weight by breastfeeding and taking placenta pills. She revealed to E! News that she’s not too concerned about getting her body back, despite what the reports may say. Kim admitted that she loves the challenge of getting in shape.
“I know my bounce back game is [strong]. I enjoy the process, the challenge of getting back, so I’m not worried about the afterward.”
Kim Kardashian received backlash after posting an old nude photo on social media. She made headlines on March 6 when she shared a NSFW nude photo that featured her standing in her bathroom mirror. While many assumed that the photo was recent, Kardashian admitted that the photo was from 2015, when she was in better shape. The reason why she hasn’t posted any recent photos of her body on social media is that she’s still struggling to lose the weight she gained during her second pregnancy.
Kim’s sister Kourtney lost 45 pounds after her third pregnancy through an organic diet, waist trainer, and yoga workouts. Now, sources claim Kim wants to know all of Kourtney’s weight-loss secrets.
